Don't try to pull the tubing straight off, it's like a chinese finger puzzle, that will tighten it and snap off your cane. Push the tubing on a little bit further, then twist, and when it starts to twist gently pull it off while continuing to twist. Voila.
I've also found that the thick wall hose is a lot easier to get on and off since it is less flexible than the thin wall siphon hose.
